To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Maurice Bishop Airport.
What to Expect
Maurice Bishop Airport is a tiny international airport on the island of Grenada. The facilities are limited, but WiFi is available and the staff is said to be exceptionally friendly! Everything at GND runs on “island time”, so prepare for the airport procedures to take a little longer to be completed than what you may expect. For economy class passengers looking for additional comfort, there is the option to pay for use of the airport’s lounge. See our Airport Lounges section below for locations and access rates.
